Old photo of Rosario, Batangas Municipal Hall taken on April 21/22, 1940 during the town fiesta. In front was the Council led by Mayor Crisanto Gualberto. The image is shared by Wifredo Dauis II on Facebook. To know more about this photo and the origin of the town fiesta, see the post below.
She represents Rosario in the Mutya ng Batangas 2014 that is part of our province's celebration of the Ala Eh! Festival from December 1 to 8. The coronation night is on December 5 in this year's host town, Taal. Here are the ways on how we can show our love and support:
Sa ibang bayan sa Batangas ang tawag dito ay "pinindot" pero sa atin sa Rosario at karatig bayan ito ay "pinaltok". Sa ibang lugar naman ito ay "ginataang bilo-bilo" or simply "bilo-bilo". Sa Ingles naman ito ay "glutinous rice balls/dumplings with coconut milk and sago (tapioca)" at "alpahor" naman sa Chavacano.
Simple lang ang version natin ng pinaltok; bilo-bilo, gata, at sago lang. Pero sa ibang lugar hinahaluan pa nila ito ng langka, saging, ube, at iba pang root crops na minsan tinatawag din itong "ginataang halo-halo".
Gualberto Avenue is already decorated with banderitas for the upcoming town fiesta. But when do you think is our fiesta? April 22? No. Since 2008, it was officially moved to October 7 upon the recognition of the Sangguniang Bayan of the declaration of the parish to celebrate the town fiesta on the feast of our patron.
